"It is to those sons of our Alma Mater who have so 
courageously gone forth to defend the liberties of all 
free men everywhere — to those who have given most 
and asked least in return" — was written as the dedi- 
cation for the 1943 McKENDREAN. 

That was a war-time dedication to those whom we 
appreciated most! Now, in peace-time, with fellow- 
students back who have doffed the khaki and have 
donned the gown, we build the theme of the 1946 
McKENDREAN.

So 



n6 



As before, McKendree is watching her proteges put aside those imple- 
ments of war to pick up their school books. The Christian education and love 
of country for which our Alma Mater has stood, regardless of any civil and 
world strife, is again welcoming back her sons to prepare them for Christian 
and democratic living. 



The youth, who have returned, will find McKendree understanding and 
appreciative. She, too, sent her sons, who whole-heartedly fought, that vic- 
tory for the ideals upon which our country was founded might be secured. 
In the note of "welcome," however, there is some sadness. There are those 
who have gone out from these portals whose lives were exchanged for the 
realization of America's ideals. They cannot be forgotten for they are part 
of McKendree and her heritage.

The 1946 McKENDREAN Staff proudly dedicates this book to our 
youthful president, Dr. Carl Cluster Bracy. Dr. Bracy, who started his admin- 
istration last fall, has already won the hearts of both faculty and entire 
student body. During his school days here at McKendree he was known as 
a "campus leader" — he still holds that title today. 



Our president's enthusiasm has acted as an incentive for McKendree's 
progress, and has had a stimulating effect on all those who have come in 
contact with him. His versatility, sense of humor, friendliness, and judgment 
make us confident that the right man has been chosen to guide McKendree's 
destiny.

SIGMA TAU DELTA 

Sigma Tau Delta is a national honorary English fra- 
ternity. The purpose of this society is to foster creative 
writing and stimulate an appreciation of good literature. 

The lota Delta chapter was organized in McKendree 
in 1936. 

In most of the meetings this past year, the members 
read their original compositions. Monthly meetings were 
held and each member served as host during one of the 
sessions. 

Sigma Tau Delta received five pledges into membership 
this past year. 



ALPHA PSI OMEGA 

The Alpha Theta cast of Alpha Psi Omega is the na- 
tional honorary fraternity for dramatics on the campus. 
Its purpose is to develop and promote dramatic interests 
in the student body. 

Since there were two members at the beginning of 
the year, little was accomplished the first semester. Three 
pledges v/ere taken into the fraternity. These pledges 
were: Joanne Bare, Mary Ellen Glotfelty and MyrI Herman. 

In the group's list of activities is included the spon- 
soring of the spring play.

SIGMA ZETA 

The Sigma Zeta, honorary science society, is a national 
organization whose purpose is to encourage scientific 
study and to recognize students of high scholarship in 
the national sciences and mathematics. The Beta chapter 
at McKendree College was organized in 1926. 

Officers for 1945-'46: president, first semester, no 
election; second semester, James Loy; recorder-tearsurer. 
Dean C. J. Stowell, Other members are Dr. H, P. K. 
Agersborg, Prof. H C, Gutekunst, Prof S M McClure 
and Dr. E. R. Spencer. 



I. s. s. 

The third year of the society with its planned pro- 
grams and activities has proved both successful and 
stimulating for its members. Again its membership has 
been limited to those students who have had at least one 
year of a foreign language Correspondence with foreign 
students is encouraged. 

An all-school party was sponsored by the society on 
March 22. 

Officers: President, Virginia Childress; Vice-President, 
Genevieve Reisner; Secretary-Treasurer, Gene Winterrowd; 
Sponsor, Mrs. H. C. Gutekunst.

CLIO 

The girls' literary society has again proved its worth 
and traditional prestige to the campus. Loyalty and co- 
operation have inspired the members not only to keep 
the society's standards high but to seek future glory for 
Clio. 

Improvements have been made in the hall and in the 
form of the weekly program. The central themes of the 
meetings have taken on greater seriousness of thought. 
This society has also helped its members to achieve a 
well-balanced personality. 



PLATO 

Monday evening is associated with the Platonian Lit- 
erary Society meeting. This year Plato began its meet- 
ings with six old members. 

Plato's influence has been felt on the campus this past 
year in his members taking the lead in campus affairs. 

During one of the meetings, designated as open-session, 
a theater party was held instead of the usual formal 
session. 

Plato is also proud of his men whom were sent out to 
extinguish the fires of hatred in World War II.

year. 

The officers are Grant Hartman, president; Clyde 
Funkhouser, vice-president and janitor; Marvin Friesner, 
first critic; Wade Gee, second critic; and Edward

McKendree's campus. The Student-Faculty Council is the 
means used to promote democratic liv.ng on the campus. 
Student representatives meet with the appointed faculty 
members. In these meetings, students and faculty mem- 
bers discuss the requests brought to them. They, then, 
pass them on to the rest of the faculty and student body. 

Members of the Council consist of six faculty mem- 
bers and six students.

ference. The special project of the year was the study 
of the black and yellow races in an effort towards better 
racial understanding.

The YMCA met each vVeanesaay evening and held 
devotional services for the men on the campus It united 
with the YWCA in the study of etiquette. The organiza-

GLEE CLUB 

The McKendree College Glee Club has had another 
successful year under the direction of Miss Eula R. Smith. 

The return of veterans helped to rebuild the male 
section and lift the Glee Club to pre-war standards. 

Some of the highlights of the season were; The 
Christmas program. President's inauguration, and the 
spring musical program. The Glee Club also appeared at 
different churches during the second semester. 

Officers were; Thelma Young, president; Miriam 
Michels, vice-president; and Wilma Bonney, secretary- 
treasurer. 



SEXTETTE 

Each year the girls' sextette is chosen from the 
chrous. This group sings at various churches and high 
schools throughout Southern Illinois. Six interesting per- 
sonalities blend their voices to make this year's sextette 
one of which to be proud. 

Mary Ruth Hilton substituted during the second semes- 
ter for Miriam Michels, who had to drop sextette because 
of illness. 

The sextette sang at Carlyle, Herrin, Signal Hill, 
Mascoutah, and in many other places

McKENDREE G. I. CLUB 



At 6:30 p m on February 6, 1946, m Room 2 of 
Carnegie Hall, the ex-servicemen of the campus met and 
formed a new club to be known thenceforth as the 
"McKendree G. I. Club." Cecil R. Albright was elected 
president, and Elmer Rouland, secretary-treasurer. Prior 
to that meeting, the GIs on the campus wandered about 
leaderless, like lost sheep, and met overwhelming diffi- 
culties in orienting themselves to the newly found cam- 
pus life. Now they have a "fold" where they can go to 
obtain fellowship, instruction, and assistance in their 
seemingly complex problems. 

The primary purpose of this club is to help orient in- 
coming GIs, to assist them in matters concerning the 
G. I, Bill of Rights, to provide a liaison with the County 
Veterans' Administration, and to build a McKendree G. I. 
Club that will be helpful and attractive to prospective 
Gl students. 



The secondary purpose of this club is to provide a 
medium whereby the GIs can meet and "hash ove?r old 
times" and to sponsor social activities on the campus for 
the entire student body. 

In order that this club be acclaimed by the faculty 
and be respected by the student body, it will endeavor to 
maintain a high scholastic average among its members. 
Such initiative will be stimulated by the purchase of an 
honorary cup which will be presented at the end of the 
semester to the club member who has the highest scho- 
lastic average for that semester. That student will have 
his name engraved on the base of the cup and will re- 
tain it until the end of the following semester, at which 
time it will be handed down to another industrious stu- 
dent.

'M" CLUB 






The "M" Club has gained a few members this year, and hopes to be 
in "full swing" again by next fall. However, with many returning veterans 
and members the second semester, the group became active. While it is one 
of the more conservative organizations on the campus, the "M" Club proudly 
sponsored the crowning of the Home-coming Queen in a most elaborate and 
successful manner. 

The officers for the year were: Arthur Kleinschmidt, president; Frank 
Harris, vice-president; and Peter Notaras, secretary-treasurer.

HOME-COMING 




HOME-COMING QUEEN 

A talented freshman was chosen Home-coming Queen of 1945. The 
striking beauty and radiant personality of Janelle Kleinschmidt soon won the 
hearts of the student body. 

Janelle gives freely of her splendid musical talent for the betterment of 
the school. 

McKendree can expect much from Janelle without danger of being 
disappointed.

MAY QUEEN 

McKendree's May Queen for 1946 was Virginia Childress of Golden 
Gate, Illinois. McKendree has found that Virginia possesses much of the 
same quality that is in the name of her home town. 

Virginia's clever wit and capability as a leader has won for her the 
admiration of the faculty and students. 

Virginia's beautiful smile will long be remembered at McKendree.

THE CLASS OF '46 

"OST of the members of this class were freshmen in 1943, although a 

few of us started in '42. Almost all of our college life was spent during 

the strain and stress of wartime; some of our fellows went into service, 
some of the girls have left us to become nurses, several of our number have 
gone for as many different reasons. Those of us who are left, the combine^ 
classes of '42 and '43, are the first peace-time class to graduate since the 
close of World War II. 

To prove how green we really were, we trespassed on government 
property for our freshman picnic, but despite the backing of the government, 
the aid of the U. S. Army, and the benefits of the clergy, the upper classmen 
found us before we could untie the clapper and ring the bell. 

We were the last class to undergo the lipstick paint, the moonlight 
walks, the scum of Lake Beautiful, and all the other "honors" of initiation. 

Our class claims the honor of being the first to start the tradition of 
High School Day, senior communion, and the all-college leaf raking. We 
saw the administration of Dr. Yost draw to a close; and though our hearts 
were filled with sadness at the loss of our beloved president, we have found 
a true friend in Dr. Bracy. We have enjoyed working with him this past 
year and are proud to be his first graduating class. 

Two of our graduating members placed in the "Dorris" last year, 
Peter Notaras winning first, and A. J. Shields winning third. 

Myrl Herman, John Fizzell and Robert Langenwalter have returned 
from several years in the service to be graduated this year. 

Our class has done its bit to feed the students, the hordes of Instituters 
who swarm over our campus, and the preachers who regularly leave their 
parishes behind and, relaxing, become boys again. We have furnished 
numerous waitresses, waiters, cooks, and dish room workers to add to the 
chaos in the kitchen. Other memories of summer school include frequent 
visits to the swimming pool and the opera, and nine o'clock dates to the 
"Highway" for the inevitable hamburger and malt; and the softball game, 
girls vs. preachers. 

Our class embraces many different types of personalities: we shall 
never forget the "touch of Texas" that lived among us for two and one-half 
years or the "Plymouth rock" that sent two of our boys to the jail. In fact, 
we shall remember the entire freshman comp class under the tutelage of the 
"Dean" from whom we coaxed "late pers." 

Climaxing our second year came the "all-sophomore" outing. By the 
latest bright-colored spring picnic apparel one would think it was an 
Easter parade, but, it was only we who were running to catch the departing 
bus. As we flopped exhaustedly into the seats, various coke cases, wood 
and foods occupied our thoughts and laps. As we merrily bounced along, 
relaxing, distant thunder claps, and darkened skies failed to dampen our 
spirits. After leaving the bus at the "overhead" there was a frantic search 
for shelter in the picnic area, as the increasing rain soaked our clothing. 
Even with the odds against us, we persisted in building the fire, roasting our 
wieners, and consuming the rest of the delectables. Shelter was then sought 
in the "little green buildings with the Gothic arches." We then caught the 
bus back to town. After this the members of the class enjoyed a retreat to 
the Alamo. 

Early in our senior year, we sponsored an all-school hayride. Many 
different kinds of recreation were enjoyed — star-gazing, singing, and gabbing. 
Those who will long remember the hayride are the dateless ones. 

Under the capable leadership of Genevieve Reisner, the president of 
our senior class, we believe ourselves to have fulfilled most of the McKen- 
dree traditions. We believe that our fond and sad memories of the incidents 
making up our four years on the hill will spur us on to lofty ambitions and 
high ideals. Our class has suffered, as have others, the results of decreased 
enrollments; but it is with gladdened hearts we welcome the prospective of 
a peace-time McKendree. We will never forget what we have learned, 
which is, most of all, how to live and gain the fullest thereof. 



THE CLASS OF '47 

'E REGISTERED at McKendree College, as the class of '47, one bright, 
sunny morning in September, 1943— as green and scared as all col- 
lege freshmen. The upper classmen gave us a hearty welcome and 
we soon felt at home on the "Old Hill." 

There were twenty-five in our class when we started but we have 
dwindled down to six from, our original class. Uncle Sam took some, others 
dropped out and four are graduating seniors because of the accelerated 
program. With the students who have come back from the various corners 
of the earth to continue their college education, our class of '47 is thirteen 
in number. 

Our freshman picnic proved to be the usual failure. And, oh— how 
can we forget initiation! The girls, in their sleeping attire and painted faces, 
were led across campus and golf course to a secluded spot in Lebanon only 
to be detected by the upper classmen; then to find their own way home. 
To be truthful, we enjoyed initiation and tipping our green caps to seniors. 
Our class was the last class to be initiated but the wearing of green caps 
is still traditional. 

We displayed our ability and talent at the annual formal freshman 
chapel program. 

As sophomores, we had a wiener roast and theater party to end two 
wonderful years at McKendree. 

Our traditional skating party at the beginning of the year was quite 
successful. 

We leave these three years of fun and hard work behind with many 
unforgettable memories. We are proud of McKendree and we will always 
honor her wherever we go. 

THE CLASS OF '48 

We, the class of '48, have lost many members during our sophomore 
year, but we continue to uphold the traditions and customs of McKendree. 
Although, as freshmen, none of us had our rooms painted green or took a 
swim in Lake Beautiful, we did submit to green caps and respectful gestures 
to upper classm.en, after our unsuccessful all-night vigil. Last year our all- 
freshman basketball team starred in an undefeated season. We took our 
part in all the school affairs, even the flowing tears at graduation time. 

As sophomores, we have helped to keep the school rolling along. In 
January we sponsored a skating party as a welcome for the second semester 
freshmen. Our officers for the year were: Thelma Young, president; Eliza- 
beth Crisp, vice-president; Eunice Hanbaum, secretary-treasurer. 

We have our serious moments as well as our silly ones. We want to 
do our best for our beloved college. We're proud of McKendree, and we 
hope she will be proud of us. 

THE CLASS OF '49 

The year 1945 marked the end of World War II. This year will be a 
memorable one in the minds of people all over the world and particularly 
in the lives of twenty-one first-year McKendreans. Our entrance into this 
institution of higher learning, with a Christian atmosphere, has been as that 
of any other freshman class. We have had many new and varied experi- 
ences which constitute a surer basis for the preparation of our life's work. 

The spirit that dwells on this "Old Hill" has permeated into our very 
beings and will hold a place in our hearts and minds the rest of our lives. 
The events that have occurred in our lives during this year at McKendree 
will some day be treasured as sacred memories. 

On the night of October 8, at the stroke of midnight, the freshman 
class successfully and tactfully accomplished the traditional feat of ringing 
the chapel bell. This was the formal introduction of the "freshies" of 1945. 
Presentation of a fine musical program, the election of a lovely freshman 
maid as Home-coming Queen, and a freshman executing the winning point 
to win our Home-coming game are the highlights of many never-to-be-forgot- 
ten events.
